Plenty of parking Breakfast was excellent
My only complaint is that I was without running water at least 8 hours on the first day of my stay and was forced by this to alter my plans for the day.
Rooms are compact but clean
Staff: i had a reservation for four nights and cancelled the first night, they didn't even ask why! I had to wait for 40 minutes to be able to check in, the had no rooms available. Beds are old, shades or blinds didn't work. Not very clean. In general it deserves not more than a 7.
Last place to stay.
At the counter you are charged a different cuote I had booked for $61 dls and I was charged $125 and was not given a good reason for the change. And I stayed 3 nights and was not given a receipt they did not know how to print different receipts.
The facility and the location, very clean and functional. The staff was wonderful.The free wi-fi is definitely a must and it made our life easier.
There was an odd odor at the shower strain once you use it. The plastic plates and cups for breakfast, I've seen much better "free breakfasts" in other hotels that have the same value.
Great value, very secure, friendly staff
Everything specially breakfast it was excellent..... plenty of food!
Parking too small
The hotel is all non-smoking, the free breakfast is superb, the hotel conveniently located and very safe. The staff is lovely, but few speak English. There are great restaurants within walking distance, and a grocery store about two blocks away. There is a hotel shuttle that will take you to the border or to appointments in the local area. The Plaza Rio, a large shopping center, is just about three blocks away. Cabs are usually waiting nearby if you need one promptly.
The City Express is bare bones plain with few amenities. There are no hairdryers, irons and ironing boards in the room, and some may find the beds too hard.
Mattress Clean We got a new room when the first one was not so well
First room we got smelled like cigarette smoke, the AC suddenly leaked water and the toilette was not working properly. Took them the whole night to change our room.
Booked my reservation at 7 pm but once I got there at 10pm they said they had cancelled it since 6pm. Staff really rude... told me next time to book through them instead
Staff was extremely friendly and honored our reservation even that we arrived at midnight. I've already booked City Express Tijuana Rio for my next trip in August.
Staff Free ride to the airport Facilities
Free breakfast was good and very friendly staff.
I didn't like anything
They did not honor or reservation for the rooms. They charge us more money than what we reserve.
I liked the nice firm supportive bed. All the accommodations in the room and parking area were fine. It was nice of the staff to keep the breakfast buffet available until 10:30am. There are two computers, a copier and a business conference table you can use in a room adjacent to the gym and hotel lobby. You cannot open the window in the bedroom to let in any air, but a quiet exhaust fan in the bathroom stays on 24/7 and ventilates the room sufficiently as long as you keep the bathroom door open overnight.
Before you can make any outside calls from the room's telephone you must first pay a deposit at the main desk.
The staff was really nice and the breakfast was pretty good. The room is pretty simple, nothing extra. The room service ladies are very nice. And If you don't know Spanish they will try to 'show' you what there trying to say.
The Wi-Fi is sometimes weak during the day. Also, there's only one or two English channels. Everything else is in Spanish.
Hot breakfast, good fresh fruit, yogourt, etc. Ground transportation to nearby places
Not a luxury hotel, just clean and decent, but good value, TV remote worked intermittently
Staff and lobby
bad internet wifi
very clean rooms, staff were helpful and location of the hotel was nice and quiet.
Lobby staff was limited I had to wait over 20 minutes just to check in one room, which at the time it took the staff less than 10 minutes to check me in, and that is because the Credit card machine was not working..
Location, location, location!! It was close to everything and the Plaza Rio mall was about 5 mins walking. The hotel was nice and very clean. The breakfast buffet was also good!!
Rooms were a little small, TV didn't have a lot of channels, and the breakfast buffet should have a little more options.
good value, clean, helpful staff, and nice breakfast.
very stiff bed,so if you have a bad back maybe you'll like it.
Complementary breakfast was very good.
They were short of staff in every department. They gave me a room that was occupied and I walked into somebody's room.
The hotel was very clean. Free breakfast was provided although we couldn't take advantage of this since we woke up so late. Free wi-fi was great. Forgot my hairdryer but the hotel provided their own at no cost to us, which was perfect! They delivered it to our room within a couple of minutes of us making the request. the check-out was extremely fast. It was a great value for the money we paid to stay here. Would definitely go back if I'm in the area and need a place to stay.
The staff was professional, but they could've been a bit friendlier. The check-in took a bit too long.
